Bloody good black pudding

This morning our great friends Dan Nye and ‘Non–stinky’ Jeff Home invited us around for breakfast. The important parts of it, the meaty things, came from Sillfield Farm. Long-time readers will know that we consider this to be the best pork butcher in London. The sausages and bacon from them are always excellent and today was no exception, but this time Dan and Jeff got something I had never tried before: Stornaway black pudding. It was a mind-warping black pudding of total brilliance. Rich and tasty with a good fatty character, but what made it so special, I feel, was the addition of a small amount of onion. This enhanced the complexity of flavours and had me wishing I could have had it all for myself. Amazing stuff. Go to Borough Market and buy some.
